In mid-2017, Wilderness Safaris (wilderness-safaris.com) made a maiden foray into Rwanda with Bisate Lodge, set just outside Volcanoes National Park; with its six spectacularly designed suites and proximity to mountain gorillas, it aimed to elevate the local paradigm.

In May, Wilderness turned its focus to Akagera National Park – a more traditional east African savannah wilderness where huge hippo and crocodile populations thrive, and lion (reintroduced in 2015) and black rhino (2017) appear with increasing frequency. The six tents at Magashi (from $650 per person sharing), all with wide views of Lake Rwanyakazinga, have massive soft, canopied mattresses in the airy, open-plan bed-bathrooms; when not fishing or on a guided bush walk, you can just lie back and admire any number of the 500-odd native bird species kiting to and fro across the water.
